Biggest negative for this park is the signage, or lack of it in places & locations where signs can be seen giving directions approaching the park, the campground area in particular. They were next to non existant. The entry area, when finally found, is very difficult to navigate with a large trailer, though interior roads are very adequate. It is a big park & CG & again signage, enough & appropiatley placed, is seriously lacking. Also tree trimming needs to be done in sites which accomodate the taller 5ers. We camped at Penninsula State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

When we checked in we were surprised that the dump station wasn't in service, with no projected in-service date. That's pretty important when none of the sites have sewer. Also had to buy an out of state park sticker for $35. In addition they charge $2 extra per night for out of state. Wisconsin is the only state park system I've stayed in that charges more to out of state campers for a site fee. The bathhouse directly across from our site didn't have showers but I did find one in another section that did. The power service looked like it had recently been upgraded. Our site was rather muddy from recent rains. Verizon cell service was sketchy and we could only pick up a couple of channels on the TV. It's a beautiful area but the campground was a little disappointing. We camped at Penninsula State Park in a Motorhome.

This is the gem of the Wisconsin State Park system, both for location and camping activities. There are five different campgrounds, two with electric hookups and three without. Fabulous hiking and biking in the park - well-marked trails. Busy in summertime - make reservations early! Decent showers but they were private, free, and had hot water. Be sure to check out the American Folklore Theatre inside the park (walking distance from Tennyson Bay Campsites) - they feature locally written, very enjoyable theatre under the stars appropriate for all ages - a highlight of camping in this state park! We camped at Penninsula State Park in a Motorhome.

Park is located in a great location to see Door County. Sites are large but some had very little rock and all became a swamp when it rained. Mosquitos are a big problem---bring lots of spray. Restrooms/Shower rooms are old and some could use an update. We camped at Penninsula State Park in a Motorhome.

What a difference a year makes. This park (along with other WI state parks) had some vintage and not-so-reliable electric posts. However, a recent state initiative has resulted in 50 amp upgrades to several state parks, including Peninsula SP. We camped in Weborg Campground which typically requires reservations a year in advance. Very private campground that is right on the lake. Verizon 4G service is good. Nearby Fish Creek has many shops and good restaurants. In fact, most of Door County itself is a destination. We camped at Penninsula State Park in a Motorhome.

We camped in Weborg site #104: one of the best sites in the park as it has a direct view and access to Lake Michigan. There are only a handful of sites in Weborg which makes it very secluded and private for a state park. Plus, you're in walking distance of Fish Creek which has great shops and restaurants. We could not have asked for a better location. However, like many older Wisconsin state parks, the electric hookups can operate poorly, especially in bad weather: like we had during our stay at Weborg. After a rain storm we were unable to get an air conditioner running off our electric pedestal. And in 90 degree humid weather a great location was not enough to keep us here and we left early: after reserving the site a year in advance. We camped at Penninsula State Park in a Motorhome.

Excellent location for visiting Door County. Many activities available within park: bike and boat rentals, hiking and biking trails, boat launch, nature center. In summer, there is live theatre performances. We stayed in Tennison Bay campground, one of several in the park. Sites were large, level, shady. Would definitely stay here again. The "pad" for the RV/trailer is dirt, not gravel. It rained the first night, so we had a mud puddle. Then it dried out and got very dusty. Good showers. We camped at Penninsula State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We camped at site #103 in the Weborg loop of Peninsula State Park.. This is a 30 amp electric only site. We've camped here before in a smaller (35') Class A, but it was difficult maneuvering our 41-footer. We clipped several bushes and trees trying to get in and out of our site. Also, site #103 is not very level. We wanted to pull into the site with the front of out RV facing the lake, but could not do it as we would have been too out of level. So we ended up backing in. However, this loop of Peninsula SP is well worth it. The views are breathtaking. This park has superb hiking and biking trails. In addition Fish Creek is a short drive (or bike ride) away and has an abundance of restaurants and stores. We camped at Penninsula State Park in a Motorhome.

Door County is a wonderful place with a wonderful State Park. Showers were clean and so were the rest rooms. Lots of biking trails. Great place to see a sunset. Will be back later this year. We camped at Penninsula State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Beautiful state park in Door County, close to shops and restaurants. Very busy during the summer and fall. There are many miles of trails for hiking and biking. Have enjoyed every one of our visits but the quiet off season times are the best for enjoying the park. We camped at Penninsula State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful park. Not as many activities as your standard "themed" park. I wish the park had a water hook up, but there are sites that you can fill up your tank before you get to your site. Fish Creek is nice but make sure you bring plenty of money because it is expensive. Overall it's a nice park with lots of views. If you want to go hiking or mountain bike riding then it's a great place. I went with my parents who are not able to do these activities so it wasn't as good for us. I would return for the fishing though. We camped at Penninsula State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Absolutely beautiful, very wooded. Nice beach area but parking near beach can become limited, try to take your bikes. This is a wonderful area for those who want to experience nature through camping, biking, hiking, and swimming. Watch out if you have a very large camper, this place is heavily wooded. Check out the bat house at night. Oh, and the fried onion rings in the beachside deli were great, nice and fat! We camped at Penninsula State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We just loved this park. We stayed in South Nicolet Bay Campground (764E) for 4 nights and Tennison Bay (438E) for 2 nights. We preferred Nicolet Bay due to the proximity to the swimming area. Also, the sites seemed a bit more private there as well. The bathroom and shower buildings are due for replacement as they do not compare to the buildings in the Michigan State Parks. We will be back in the future. We camped at Penninsula State Park in a Tent Trailer.

This is the premiere state park in Wisconsin. There is tons of things to do including, 30 miles of bike trails, many paved, swimming at the beach, light house tours, hiking, boat rentals, etc. Stayed in Tennison Bay site 304e which was very private. The next door sites were 30 yards away with bushes in between. Right outside the park is all of Door County with fish boils, cherry tours, mini golf, etc. Would definitely come back.
